STC Adopts Final Five-Year Transportation Program and State Long-Range Transportation Plan

LANSING, MI — The State Transportation Commission (STC) adopted the final versions of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) 2022-2026 Five-Year Transportation Program (5YTP) and the Michigan Mobility 2045 Plan (MM2045), also known as the State Long-Range Transportation Plan (SLRTP). Throughout the development of the documents, MDOT incorporated public comments on projects and transportation issues important to Michigan.

The 5YTP contains a list of planned MDOT road and bridge projects, as well as information on public transportation, rail, and aviation programs. It connects MDOT's established long-term needs and goals set in the SLRTP with shorter-term goals for asset management and expectations for available state and federal revenues.

The 2022-2026 5YTP includes $15.2 billion in anticipated state and federally funded investments for MDOT roads, bridges, safety, operations, and maintenance projects expected to begin construction within the next five years.

Highlights of this year’s 5YTP include:

  • $12.3 billion for the Highway Program, including $2.3 billion in projects made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's $3.5-billion Rebuilding Michigan program
  • $2.9 billion for the Public Transportation Program
  • A list of projects planned to begin work, by region, within the next five years
  • Highlights on highway and public transportation projects contributing to MDOT’s focus on equity, inclusion, transportation resiliency, and pedestrian and bicycle safety

MM2045 defines the long-term direction for the future of Michigan’s transportation network for all users. Throughout development of the new MM2045 plan, MDOT has been seeking the opinions of a large and diverse group of Michigan residents and stakeholders representing groups with an interest or concern for the state's transportation decision-making process. The input and comments received during the public comment period were integral in the development of MM2045.

The 25-year MM2045 plan is the first of its kind to incorporate not only an overall vision of the state's transportation system, but to include two additional federally required documents: the State Rail Plan and State Freight Plan. MM2045 also developed Michigan's first statewide active transportation plan and statewide transit strategy. These five efforts combined into one will provide a streamlined multimodal vision of the transportation future in Michigan across all modes.
